Community Rallies for Gerardo, Hearing Date Delayed to December 5th

Gerardo and his family received a warm and enthusiastic welcome this afternoon as around 100 people rallied to support them and to educate English speaking audiences about the injustices of the U.S.’s broken immigration system.  Many students who have been fighting for the DREAM Act were in attendance. Thank you, Jeremy Bermudez of PAZ for a wonderful, rousing call to action!  Also accompanying us were actors portraying banks and private prison corporations, ICE, with students chained by their interests.
After Gerardo spoke to the crowd, he and his family went in to immigration court, where his lawyer proceeded to apply for and receive an extension on Gerardo’s hearing.  It is now scheduled for December 5th. You can be sure we’ll be there.
If you haven’t already signed the petition for Gerardo on United We Dream’s Website, please do so:
Also, we hope to see you at the following upcoming events:
Immigration Forum at Denver’s First Universalist Church at Colorado and Hampden, June 12, 11:30 to 2.  This is a great opportunity for folks to learn what’s going on with deportations in the U.S. The program will be in English, and will feature RAP leaders Jeanette and Gerardo as well speaking via translator.

Jeanette’s Final Deportation Hearing at Immigration Court, 17th and Welton,
